Principal and co-founder Richard Lennox said Futureproof was the perfect addition to its curriculum.
“As a business studies teacher and entrepreneur myself, I believe it is vital that pupils learn skills beyond what is taught in the classroom. It is only through a tangible experience with real life that we can expect pupils to enter a constantly changing and challenging work environment”.
Futureproof offers practical programmes for pupils on the art of entrepreneurship in an effort to alleviate poverty and unemployment for the next generation.
It was founded by Lisa Illingworth, a former teacher and media personality who recognised the need for educating children on the practical application and art of entrepreneurship in order to create a generation of informed, thriving youths.
